Player | Ht | Wt | Pos | Team | Age

Markelle Fultz

  1. *Boston | Markelle Fultz | 6-4 | 190 | PG | Washington | 18

This kid is amazing. It's between him and Ball for the #1 pick but right now Fultz gets the edge. Could fit on the Celtics next to Isaiah. *Penny Hardaway
Lonzo Ball

  2. *LA Lakers | Lonzo Ball | 6-6 | 190 | PG | UCLA | 19

Lonzo to the Lakers seems like a real possibility. Yes, they already have 2 talented PGs in D-Russ and Clarkson, but the talent here is too great to pass up. Go BPA with a potential franchise player and let Luke Walton figure out the depth chart later. *Jason Kidd
Josh Jackson

  3. *Philadelphia | Josh Jackson | 6-8 | 205 | SG/SF | Kansas | 20

A special talent who plays both ends of the court. An elite athlete with great competitive fire. Jackson could still very well go #1 so this is a significant drop but if Monk rises he could fall. Tom Thibodeau gets another young talented potential ROY. *Kawhi Leonard
De'Aaron Fox

  4. Phoenix | De'Aaron Fox | 6-3 | 170 | PG | Kentucky | 19

Fox's size, athleticism, passing and defense gives him a great platform to build off as a NBA prospect. Had a great NCAA Tournament and Combine and is now in discussion as a top 3-5 pick. The Sixers get their PG of the future.
Dennis Smith

  5. *Sacramento | Dennis Smith | 6-2 | 195 | PG | NC State | 19

Quick, athletic playmaker who can get to the basket. The Kings get their franchise PG of the future, they may really like Dennis Smith to pair with Buddy Hield.
Malik Monk

  6. Orlando | Malik Monk | 6-3 | 200 | SG | Kentucky | 19

A top level athlete who can really play above the rim and is becoming a knock down shooter. Plays with poise and ice water in his veins. The Magic are rebuilding and searching for a real star to build around, Monk was money in the Tournament and could definitely go top 5. *Lou Williams
Zach Collins

  7. Minnesota | Zach Collins | 6-11 | 230 | C | Gonzaga | 19

The Wolves go BPA. I've heard rumors calling Collins a potential top 10 pick, so it's worth keeping an eye on which teams he works out for for whether they're true.
Frank Ntilikina

  8. New York | Frank Ntilikina | 6-5 | 190 | PG | France | 18

The top international player in the 2017 NBA Draft. Some experts like BR's Jonathan Wasserman predict that Ntilikina will end up being the best PG in the stacked 2017 class. The Knicks hit a home run when they drafted Porzingis 2 years ago so they go back to the international pool for their PG.
Jayson Tatum

  9. *Dallas | Jayson Tatum | 6-8 | 205 | SF | Duke | 19

Tatum has great size for a wing and excellent scoring prowess. The Magic just need talent, and grabbing a go-to offensive threat like Tatum would be a huge addition. He could become Vogel's PG in Orlando.
Jonathan Isaac

  10. *Sacramento | Jonathan Isaac | 6-10 | 210 | SF/PF | Florida St. | 19

Long and talented big, versatile, can hit the 3 and bring the ball up like a guard. A perfect low-risk/high reward modern NBA 4. Dirk has hinted that this was his final season, and there are several great PFs the Mavs could draft as a potential replacement.
Lauri Markkanen

  11. Charlotte | Lauri Markkanen | 7-0 | 230 | PF | Arizona | 20

The best shooting big man in the draft, the Porzingis comparison has been tossed around. A lanky 7-foot European who can shoot it from deep? It's like this guy was specially made to take over for Dirk. On paper the transition would seemingly be seamless.
Donovan Mitchell

  12. Detroit | Donovan Mitchell | 6-2 | 210 | SG | Louisville | 20

Compensates for lack of size with tremendous athletic ability. Also possesses terrific lateral quickness, giving him intriguing potential on the defensive end.
OG Anunoby

  13. Denver | OG Anunoby | 6-7 | 235 | SF/PF | Indiana | 19

The Nets took a chance on Caris LeVert in last year's draft and he's emerged as one of their most talented young pieces. They're not competing for the postseason any time soon and are still just collecting assets, so they may hope that lightning strikes twice and gamble on Anunoby, a potential top 20 pick before his season ended early.
TJ Leaf

  14. Miami | TJ Leaf | 6-10 | 225 | PF | UCLA | 20

Chris Bosh didn't play a single minute last season and it appears his time in Miami is over.
Justin Jackson

  15. Portland | Justin Jackson | 6-8 | 200 | SF | North Carolina | 22

I could see Justin Jackson' stock rise to the late lottery after he led UNC to the National Championship. Tremendous size, length, and sweet shooting stroke and basketball IQ. Projects as the type of offensive X factor the Hornets desperately need.
Terrance Ferguson

  16. Chicago | Terrance Ferguson | 6-7 | 185 | SG | USA | 19

American swingman who's tearing it up Down Under. Originally committed to Arizona but in a move reminiscent of Brandon Jennings, decided to go overseas. Explosive athlete who can absolutely fly and can also light it up from three point land.
Harry Giles

  17. Milwaukee | Harry Giles | 6-10 | 230 | PF/C | Duke | 19

A top 5 prospect at the start of the season whose stock was decimated by nagging injuries all season. He ends up with the Spurs here so you know he'll reach his preseason potential down the line.
Ivan Rabb

  18. Indiana | Ivan Rabb | 6-10 | 220 | PF/C | California | 20

Rabb made a good decision returning for his sophomore season, he was a lottery pick in last year's draft and has already improved a lot, but falls due to heavy depth at the 4-5. Smooth athlete with a high basketball IQ. Gread hands & a solid skill set.
Bam Adebayo

  19. Atlanta | Bam Adebayo | 6-10 | 245 | PF/C | Kentucky | 19

Explosive and powerful player with a NBA body. Can really rock the rim. Lacks ideal height but has a lot of length. The Pacers get a complement for Myles Turner in the frontcourt.
Jarrett Allen

  20. *Portland | Jarrett Allen | 6-10 | 235 | C | Texas | 19

A true post player with a fundamentally sound game, who is a difference maker on both ends of the court. The Blazers will look for another big to pair with Jusuf Nurkic, as 2012 1st rounder Meyers Leonard has mostly disappointed and bust signing Festus Ezeli has yet to see the court in a Blazers uniform.
Isaiah Hartenstein

  21. Oklahoma Cty | Isaiah Hartenstein | 7-0 | 250 | PF | Germany | 19

The recent rise of Jokic to NBA superrstar and lack of NCAA depth at PF/C could cause his stock to rise.
Hamidou Diallo

  22. *Brooklyn | Hamidou Diallo | 6-5 | 195 | SG | Kentucky | 18

2017's Thon Maker. Just completed his freshman season at Kentucky but never played for the Wildcats due to eligibility concerns.
Ike Anigbogu

  23. *Toronto | Ike Anigbogu | 6-10 | 250 | C | UCLA | 18

Toronto can't count on Joey V to be a rim protector and Jakob Poeltl is too raw, so they gamble on another high-upside freshman with this pick.
Luke Kennard

  24. Utah | Luke Kennard | 6-6 | 195 | SG | Duke | 20

A crafty offensive player with a sweet shooting stroke. He projects as an offensive specialist at the next level. Would be a fit on my Jazz as an upgrade over 3rd string wing Joe Ingles.
Caleb Swanigan

  25. *Orlando | Caleb Swanigan | 6-9 | 250 | PF/C | Purdue | 20

Deadly back-to-the-basket big man. Improved shooting from the perimeter. Huge wingspan compensates for a lack of quickness and explosiveness. The Magic get a development PF prospect with the pick they got after scrapping the failed Ibaka experiment.
PJ Dozier

  26. *Portland | PJ Dozier | 6-6 | 200 | PG/SG | South Carolina | 20

The Kings need a young PG to pair with Boogie and build the team around. Ty Lawson is just a temporary solution. This kid has some first round buzz but I think he's too raw, he hasn't shown enough to warrant a first round selection.
Rodions Kurucs

  27. *Brooklyn | Rodions Kurucs | 6-8 | 200 | SF | Latvia | 19

The Blazers will probably go draft-and-stash with at least one of their 3 first round picks.
Dwayne Bacon

  28. *LA Lakers | Dwayne Bacon | 6-6 | 220 | SG/SF | Florida St. | 21

Top 20 talent but no way he goes in the first round, major attitude problem. Selfish, thinks he's MJ and tries to do too much.
Kostja Mushidi

  29. San Antonio | Kostja Mushidi | 6-5 | 225 | SG/SF | Germany | 18

Likely draft-and-stash, a rock solid athlete who is a great defender and high IQ player. Though he is crazy full of talent, definitely needs another year in Serbia to refine his skills. Like I said, the Nets aren't looking to compete next season and can wait.
Mathias Lessort

  30. *Utah | Mathias Lessort | 6-9 | 235 | PF | France | 21

The Jazz are looking to rebuild around DPOY candidate Rudy Gobert. The go back to France to find a potential backup for him. They also shopped Derrick Favors at the trade deadline so there are rumors that he could be gone soon.
Justin Patton

  31. *Atlanta | Justin Patton | 6-11 | 230 | C | Creighton | 19

A big athletic center with impressive skills for his size. Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, and Derrick Favors are all free agents this summer and the Jazz obviously can't afford to keep them all. Utah plans to rebuild around Rudy Gobert for the future, so here is a promising prospect to back him up.
John Collins

  32. Phoenix | John Collins | 6-9 | 225 | PF/C | Wake Forest | 19

Collins' stock rose to first round status throughout the year and after the Combine and workouts he should be a dark horse lottery candidate. The Pacers get a frontcourt mate for Myles Turner.
Johnathan Motley

  33. *LA Lakers | Johnathan Motley | 6-9 | 240 | PF | Baylor | 22

I really like Motley, he's one of my favorite prospects in the draft. The Lakers need some more depth in the frontcourt behind Randle and Zubac.
Anzejs Pasecniks

  34. *Sacramento | Anzejs Pasecniks | 7-1 | 220 | C | Latvia | 21

Kyle Kuzma

  35. Orlando | Kyle Kuzma | 6-9 | 225 | PF | Utah | 21

Ege Arar

  36. *Philadelphia | Ege Arar | 6-9 | 230 | PF | Turkey | 20

Sindarius Thornwell

  37. *Boston | Sindarius Thornwell | 6-5 | 210 | SG | South Carolina | 22

Helped his stock during South Carolina's run to the Final Four.
Josh Hart

  38. *Chicago | Josh Hart | 6-5 | 210 | SG | Villanova | 22

The Spurs know how to pick em. Josh Hart's maturity and ability to thrive in a supporting role make him a perfect fit in San Antonio.
Jonathan Jeanne

  39. *Philadelphia | Jonathan Jeanne | 7-2 | 210 | C | France | 19

The Rockets are playing really well this year and can afford to gamble on a draft-and-stash again. Raw with a lot of upside on the defensive end. Could take a few years.
Wesley Iwundu

  40. New Orleans | Wesley Iwundu | 6-7 | 195 | SG/SF | Kansas State | 22

Devin Robinson

  41. Charlotte | Devin Robinson | 6-8 | 190 | SF/PF | Florida | 22

Jordan Bell

  42. *Utah | Jordan Bell | 6-8 | 225 | PF/C | Oregon | 22

Marko Guduric

  43. *Houston | Marko Guduric | 6-6 | 200 | SG | Serbia | 22

Jawun Evans

  44. *New York | Jawun Evans | 6-0 | 185 | PG | Oklahoma State | 20

George Hill may not be back and Dante Exum hasn't lived up to his top 5 billing/can't stay healthy.
Tony Bradley

  45. *Houston | Tony Bradley | 6-10 | 250 | C | North Carolina | 19

Switching it up and adding Tony Bradley to my 2017 mock draft. UNC's national championship makes his early departure after one productive season entirely likely. Strong and mobile, competes on both ends, doesn't play outside of his abilities, and has a nice touch on the interior. Brooklyn is still just stockpiling assets, so the potential a kid like Bradley possesses could tempt Sean Marks to take a chance.
Edmond Sumner

  46. *Philadelphia | Edmond Sumner | 6-5 | 175 | PG/SG | Xavier | 21

Out for the season with a knee injury. Needs to end up on a team that will let him recover then develop/where he won't have to play right away. Raptors are in their window and have Kyle Lowry so it'd be a nice fit.
Jonah Bolden

  47. Indiana | Jonah Bolden | 6-10 | 235 | PF | Australia | 21

Dillon Brooks

  48. Milwaukee | Dillon Brooks | 6-6 | 220 | SF | Oregon | 21

Thomas Bryant

  49. *Denver | Thomas Bryant | 6-11 | 250 | C | Indiana | 19

Old school player with an NBA-ready body and good post game. You gotta feel bad for Brook Lopez, who has been the one constant on the Nets through their recent struggles.
Jaron Blossomgame

  50. *Philadelphia | Jaron Blossomgame | 6-7 | 220 | SF | Clemson | 23

DJ Wilson

  51. *Denver | DJ Wilson | 6-10 | 235 | PF | Michigan | 21

Derrick White

  52. Washington | Derrick White | 6-4 | 190 | PG/SG | Colorado | 22

Ayberk Guleryuz

  53. *Boston | Ayberk Guleryuz | 6-9 | 205 | SF/PF | Turkey | 21

Alec Peters

  54. *Phoenix | Alec Peters | 6-8 | 235 | PF | Valparaiso | 22

Another one of my favorite prospects, I think he's really underrated. An excellent three point shooter and natural scorer with limited upside. My Jazz kept Gordon Hayward after his first run through free agency...I don't think we can afford to keep him the next time.
VJ Beachem

  55. Utah | VJ Beachem | 6-7 | 195 | SF | Notre Dame | 22

Aleksej Nikolic

  56. *Boston | Aleksej Nikolic | 6-3 | 185 | PG | Slovenia | 22

Aleksandar Vezenkov

  57. *Brooklyn | Aleksandar Vezenkov | 6-9 | 225 | SF/PF | Bulgaria | 21

Edvinas Seskus

  58. *New York | Edvinas Seskus | 6-4 | 185 | SG/SF | Lithuania | 22

Chris Boucher

  59. San Antonio | Chris Boucher | 6-9 | 185 | PF/C | Oregon | 24

Frank Jackson

  60. *Atlanta | Frank Jackson | 6-3 | 200 | PG/SG | Duke | 19
